absolutely right - they have been prearranging setlists for many many many moons (with the occasional song substitutions on the fly)


and to those who are complaining, what is wrong with a teleprompter or "cheat notes???" - i can't even remember my own friggin cell phone number and i am only in my mid forties. (ok, maybe using my addled brain is a bad comparison, but still.....) It is a well known psychological fact that sometimes when you know a poem/lyric too well for too many years, the memory recall process actually gets worse, not better. (weird as that may sound). in fact, i just may get a teleprompter to help me when i have to yell at my daughters and use their names ;)

Isn't it great when yelling at one kid and you use a different kids name!! Then just start yelling in general!!

I do the same thing. I routinely get my boys' names wrong. Like 80% of the time. It happens when I have to think very quickly.

Bobby flubs lyrics all the time. On the 73-74 tour he flubbed the opening lines to PITB more than 50% of the time. I still think it's lame...just learn them. Maybe there are notes on there too. If they can't remember the lyrics, how can they remember the notes?

I guess if you like to hear songs like Cream Puff War and New Potato Caboose then you'll gladly allow them to read the lyrics, and maybe the notes.

EXACTLY!!!!!

and then when the kids start laughing at ME, it kinda takes a bit of the wind out of my sails. either that, or i am just too much of a softy with my girls.... (it is an amazing fact of human nature how quickly daugthers get their daddy wrapped around their little fingers)

good thing they are so cute........

very cool - i will do the same with my girls and fiance - your email addy is even doubly listed in my contact list - must be because you are doubly special ;) tried posting a pic on this site, but i cant seem to get the image resolution low enough for archive to accept it (combining that with how techno-stupid i am, and i find myself in the midst of a real conundrum)


(you'd figure yahoo would prevent redundant email addys, but nooooooo......)
